Nurturing Growth in Our Community



Welcome to Thornliebank Primary & Early Learning and Childcare Centre. Our school motto encapsulates everything that we strive for. We aim to ensure that every experience we provide for our children:


  1. Nurtures and supports them to reach their potential in a safe and secure environment.
  2. Encourages them to grow and progress as learners and as global citizens.
  3. Builds on their capacity to contribute and enhance our community and builds on the capacity of our wider community to support our children’s growth.


We work to ensure that we ‘Get It Right for Every Child’ and that all children are Safe, Healthy, Achieving, Nurtured, Active, Respected, Responsible and Included.


We pursue excellence in all aspects of the experiences we provide and above all else, we prioritise the importance of quality learning and teaching as the key to achieving our vision. It is through the everyday experiences and interactions that take place in our classrooms and playrooms that our children will fulfil their potential.


Through our curriculum we help prepare all children and young people to take their place in a modern society and economy. While we recognise the importance of developing skills for life and for work we also aim to promote a love of learning and the intrinsic joy of developing new interests and skills that will broaden horizons and enhance cultural capital.


We actively encourage parents/carers to take a positive role in the education of our children. We look forward to welcoming new pupils and parents and will work in partnership to ensure you and your child benefit from being part of our school community.

If you wish further information, please do not hesitate to contact me via our school office. I look forward to meeting you in person.
